    I am interested to hear why you use them, and what difference you have felt? How is your horse better?

    If you tie your horse's face to it's chest, maybe you'll get a "prettier" circle. Take the ties off? You've got a horse that has no clue what you want him to do. Forcing a horse's head into a frame by tying it down is not teaching the horse how to carry himself around a circle. All it teaches him is to resent being ridden with the ties and to resist his work. Teach, do not force.

    Good luck!
    I love these kind of exercises, keeps the horse on its toes and listening, not just going round and round on an endless circle!
